Keywords - Chapter 1: New Learning

Curriculum – the consciously designed framework for learning a body of knowledge or a set of capacities over an extended period of time; for instance, a term’s program in history or a two-year program in chemistry.

Education – a series of institutions and a scientific discipline concerned with premeditated and systematic learning. In the modern world, the institutions of education are formally constructed places (classrooms), times (of the day and of life) and social relations (teachers and students); for instance, schools and colleges and universities. The scientific discipline of education is the systematic investigation of the ways in which humans know and learn. People training to be professional educators study the science of education.

Learning – a capacity to know new things and to do new things as a consequence of lived experience and social action. Learning is an integral part of our human natures. Learning happens across the length and breadth of human lives.

Pedagogy – small sequences of learner activity that promote learning, one kind of move after the other; for instance, reading an historical document then interpreting what it means, or conducting a chemistry experiment, then drawing conclusions.
